In other clinics, in the case of insurance treatment, it seems that silver teeth are often included as usual. Recently Dental Help, however, some insurance programs have been able to offer non-metal treatments. It is also because we, in accordance with the policy of the country (insurance), did not give enough information to our patients until now, but in fact there are also many negative effects of metal in the mouth It is

I do not want to continue the treatment, “Shut up to know and put silver teeth on the patient”. Of course, it is up to the patient to decide what kind of nails and covers to choose, but before that, I would like to tell the patient the correct information and knowledge that I can know as a dentist. .

I have put together here what I always think about after skinning questions that patients often ask about treatment. There may be stories that you have not heard before, but please read them.

Isn’t everything good for insurance treatment?

When I get a doctor due to a cold etc., I think that I have never been told that ” I can do this with insurance treatment, but this treatment is my own expense” .

may be thought that insurance treatment is a bad treatment?”
